Crane operator faces up to 5 years imprisonment over workplace death

 

ACT Work Safety Commissioner Greg Jones said that “the consequences and penalties for failing to meet safety obligations and responsibilities are very substantial,” Mr Jones said.

“Supervisors must ensure that their workers understand the safety systems and procedures and ensure that they are being followed at all times.”

The ACT is one of several Australian states to have implemented industrial manslaughter laws, but they are not applicable to cases that occurred in the past.
